I have some documents in my Google Docs that I would like to transfer to Confluence.
My document makes heavy use of highlighting text in color to differentiate certain contextual elements in the document.
How do I highlight text with color in confluence?
Hello Cobin and welcome to Community!
There is an open feature request: Provide ability to easily highlight text with color in WYSIWYG editor, you can vote for it to show interest and watch it to be updated.
You can use macros as a workaround:
You'll get this as a result:
Hope this helps,
It's remarkable that there's no text highlight for an enterprise-grade software. Why are you charging customers when customer still has to "vote" for a very basic feature?
Yellow highlighting is typically used to indicate 'work to do' in a document. I achieve this by commenting on the text, which highlights it in yellow and add a comment in 'to do'. Using comments for highlights in this way has the added benefit of providing you with a list of you highlighted test on a page. Here's an example:
Using Content Formatting Macros for Confluence it is easy to highlight text using a background macro.
Also, for background, add-on users can upload pictures to improve the Confluence page design.
This app is developed by my Adaptavist team, so if someone has any questions - I'm happy to help.
I have no idea what macro @Dave Hildebrandt was using, but I created my own:
## Macro title: Span ## Macro has a body: Y ## Body processing: Rendered ## ## Wraps content in a span tag with optional class name and styles for the tag. Do not include quotes in the class name or styles. ## ## @param Id:title=ID|type=string|option-showValueInPlaceholder=true ## @param Class:title=Class|type=string|desc=The class of the element ## @param Style:title=Style|type=string|desc=An inline ctyle definition ## @param Title:title=Title|type=string|desc=Text to display in a tool tip <span #if ($paramId) id="$paramId" #end #if ($paramClass) class="$paramClass" #end #if ($paramStyle) style="$paramStyle" #end #if ($paramTitle) title="$paramTitle" #end >$body</span>
